MY STORY

Stefano Fronza, 1978. Graduated from the school of art "Alessandro Vittoria" in Trento (Art of metals and Goldsmithing), he designs jewels while experimenting techiques and materials at his father's goldsmith workshop and, in the meantime, he deepens his knowledge of further techniques and manufacturing processes at other workshops in Trentino.
In 2000 he joins a Call for Scholarships for visual arts and moves to Düsseldorf, where he attends the Department of Jewelry Design of the then Fachhochschule, thereby working with several artists and professors, in particular with Peter Skubic, Elisabeth Holder and Herman Hermsen.
Back from Germany, he enhances his contacts with personalities belonging to the world of international contemporary jewelry. While in Munich, he meets the owner of Padua-based Studio Marijke and from this moment he starts a fruitful collaboration which is still ongoing nowadays.
He joins and wins a second Call for Scholarships, deciding to work with professor Erico Nagai at the Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg, where he becomes acquainted with the German artist Bussi Buhs, from whom he draws inspiration.
He spends two years in The Netherlands and, at the end of 2001, he joins one more Call for scholarships; he wins it thanks to an interdisciplinary project about the interaction among different art languages: jewelry, music and dance.
Back to Italy, in 2004 he resumes his work in the family workshop and, in the meantime, he keeps collaborating with Studio Marijke in Padua, where he can exhibit the outcome of years devoted to study and research.
In 2011 his first personal exhibition Effetto Donna takes place at Palazzo Candelpergher in Nogaredo; the exhibition is curated by Osvaldo Maffei and Micaela Vettori. The latter also is the curator of Stefano's first performance Alchimie nell'aria, that takes place in 2015 at Sala Baldessari in Rovereto.
Since then he has attended numerous collective exhibitions: at Studio Marijke in Padua, Museo del Gioiello in Vicenza, FWavezione Stelline in Milan and at several exhibitions curated by Alba Cappellieri that take place in the jewelry pavillion of the Milan-based Homi Fiera.
In 2019 he gets selected for the jewelry exhibition organized at Ca' Pisani Design Hotel in Venice during the Venice Design Week and curated by Lisa Balasso. He becomes member of AGC - Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo, with which he starts collaborating by taking care of the association website.
2020 is marked by the attendance at two online exhibitions, i.e. Gioielli in Fermento, curated by Eliana Negroni (Castel San Giovanni, Piacenza) and Light, curated by Thereza Pedrosa Gallery, a gallery based in Asolo (Treviso). Most recently, he got selected for Premio Vittorio Sgarbi in Ferrara.
